Perfect Patio Garden Plants!

We have been real busy at the farm and I haven’t had time to write a news letter lately. Actually, I have been writing for another project so with my limited creative abilities it is hard to do both. But we need to catch you up on the latest from the farm.

We have several new subscribers to the listserv so welcome to you.

When it finally warmed up last week everything in the garden just went crazy growing! We have lots of huge heads of romaine lettuce, plenty of broccoli, beautiful Swiss chard, arugula, mesclun mix, red kale, and cabbage by the weekend. I think there will be some zephyr squash ready and we have a few naturally grown strawberries. Of course everything we grow is without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

According to an article in the NY Times the government is going to restart a process that began 35 years ago to ban the routine use of certain antibiotics in confined animal feeding operations. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/24/health/fda-is-ordered-to-restrict-use-of-antibiotics-in-livestock.html
It is about time in our opinion. We do not use antibiotics or growth hormones in any of our animals.

We have a good supply of USDA grass fed Jersey beef. Our laying hens are happy so we have several dozen free range farm eggs.

Currently, hours at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market are Tuesday through Friday (10:00 until 2:00); Saturday (8:00 until 4:00); Sunday (10:00 until 3:00). We are in space 74, farmers area 2.

Come and check our our selection of naturally grown vegetable plants and herbs for your garden or patio.

It is always great to see you at the market so we hope you will come visit with us this week!
